RoarOfTheRiftBanner


Roar of the Rift is a special, limited time event by DragonVale which required players to collect magic and trade them at the Prize Pavilion to receive rewards.

Each reward required a certain amount of magic to be traded in exchange for the prize. There were three categories, each containing unique prizes.

At first, the Roar of the Rift event was called the Arcane Pentournament II, prior to a cataclysmic rupture splintered through the event island causing it to break apart requiring the airships of the five houses from the Arcane Pentournament to be called in to help.

Houses

  • Blazing Gale Motto Card
  • Hidden Bolt Motto Card
  • Icy Torrent Motto Card
  • Iron Blossom Motto Card
  • Mountain Sun Motto Card

Leading up to the event motto cards for each house was posted on the DragonVale Facebook page.

There were five Houses which returned from the Arcane Pentournament and each House had two primary elements assigned to it.

If a player participated in the Arcane Pentournament, the player is placed in the same house that was chosen during that event.

If a player didn't participate in the Arcane Pentournament, the player chooses a house as part of the tutorial for the event.

Each house also had a specific motto, set of characteristics, alumnus/alumni, and house description.


Earning A Free Dragon

Players had to collect magic which went towards that house to earn a free event dragon.

Players could turn in their earned magic at their house airship.

Each house has an airship stationed around The Rift, and players have the opportunity to contribute to the house airship to earn magic.

The airships request treats and borrow at lest one dragon of a specific level.

The dragon must be of that level or higher to count, and once the mission is completed the dragon returns back home.


The Rift

TheRift

As part of trying to help protect the vale from The Rift, players have an option to send five dragons of that particular day's requested element in return for magic.

Players may accumulate up to Magic template 60 at a time, but may collect earned amounts prior to reaching the max amount.

It is possible to switch out dragons while in The Rift, and once the mission is complete the dragons return back home.

The magic is granted after the mission is completed.

The Help Menu in Prize Pavilion of the Roar of the Rift provided a detailed information about the event. Please refer the images found in the gallery to your right. The "Info" section in the Roar of the Rift Help Menu provides a detailed information of every category.


Tutorial

Roar of the Rift started with a tutorial explaining how the event will work.

The process of this tutorial can be viewed in the gallery to the right.

The tutorial took a few minutes to complete from beginning to end, but players received Magic template 100 as a goal completion reward after completing the tutorial.


Max Magic

  • The completion prize at the end of the tutorial does not count toward your max daily magic
  • Buying magic does not count toward your daily magic limit
  • The daily magic limit is 1,000 a day and 2,000 on double days


Reward Completion

When enough magic were collected they were able to be used at the Prize Pavilion for unique prizes.

Players were able to select which prize they wanted in what ever order they wished. There were four sections of prizes; "Omnitier", "Pentournal", "Faire", "Firefly", and "Light & Dark". Unlike previous events, a player does not need a certain amount of prizes from the previous section to unlock the next section to have access to purchase the prizes inside it.

Possible References

  • Many of the house mottos may be a reference to HBO's Game of Thrones television series and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels:
    • The Motto of Blazing Gale, "Unscorched, Untethered, Untroubled," may be a reference to House Martell whose house words are "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken."
    • The Motto of Icy Torrent, "We Do Not Sink," may be a reference to House Greyjoy whose house words are "We Do Not Sow."
    • The Motto of Iron Blossom, "Sown and Forged," may be a reference to House Targaryen whose house words are "Fire and Blood."
    • The Motto of Mountain Sun, "Strong and Shining," may be a reference to House Tyrell whose house words are "Growing Strong."
  • Multiple alumni names from the different houses are a play on words:
    • The alumnus "Pi Roh" from the Blazing Gale House is a play on the word "pyro" which is a prefix associated with "fire" or "heat" and one of the house elements is "fire."
    • The alumnus "Anne T. Matre" from the Hidden Bolt House is a play on the word "antimatter" which may be associated as being dark and one of the house elements is "dark."
    • The alumnus "Shi Nee" from the Iron Blossom House is a play on the word "shiny" which may be associated with certain metals and one of the house elements is "metal."
    • The alumnus "Verdant Thumbe" from the Iron Blossom House is a play on the phrase "green thumb" since verdant means "green with vegetation" and one of the house elements is "plant."
    • The alumnus "T. Erra" from the Mountain Sun House is a play on the word "terra" which means "earth" and one of the house elements is "earth."
  • The mentioning of "ValeGro magical fertilizer" from the Notable "Alumni" section of the Iron Blossom House may be a reference to the product "MiracleGro" which is a fertilizer.
